The development of battery electric vehicles (BEV) must continue since this offers the leading route towards a zero emission transport system. The fuel flexibility of the BEV offers the greatest potential to utilize power from renewable or low emission sources to be used in the transport system. However the limited range and high cost of the BEV remain important issues to be addressed. The battery is the element which strongly affects the cost and range of the BEV. The batteries offer either high specific power or high specific energy, but not both. This paper presents the modelling of a BEV which is used to study the potential for improvement in its energy efficiency. The battery model types have been discussed. The vehicle and other component models have been described. The choice of model parameters and the control strategy has been explained. The simulations have been performed on homologation and real world cycles for different scenarios. Results show significant potential for improvement in the energy efficiency of the BEV in real world usage by the utilization of a secondary energy storage device.
